Do you have work for sale?
Yes my artwork is available to be sold.
In what media do you work?
I work with just about all medias. From clay to photography and from drawing to painting. I love to do it all.
How would you describe your style?
It is hard for me to pinpoint my exact style since I work with so many different kinds of mediums. It kind of depends on what my latest source of inspiration is too. I guess you could say that my style is ever changing.
Who would you say have been influences on your work?
The people who I find to have influenced my work the most are Annie Leibovitz, Paul Gauguin, William Eggleston, and Julien Palast.
Are there particular themes you like to explore in your work?
I like my art to be thought-provoking. I want people to see my art and wonder to themselves what the story is behind a certain image, or better yet, for them to make their own story up about an image.
What do you most enjoy about the creative process?
The part of the creative process that I enjoy the most is actually conceptualizing an idea for a new project. Don’t get me wrong, I love the whole process, but looking for new inspirations to try to come up with a new idea is my favorite part because of all the things you see along the way.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am an Art Education major at Minot State and am minoring in Photography. I have lived in Minot my whole life and graduated from Minot High in 2017. I always am looking for ways to improve and get better with my work and I also am always looking for new techniques to try within my art.
